Anger the Destroyer

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus pointed out that anger leads to murder. Probably the number one thing that is spiritually killing the children in Bible-believing homes and churches is the anger of one or both of the parents. Anger also destroys the oneness between a husband and wife. Many parents think their wrath is justified by their children’s disobedience and rebellion. It is more likely that the rebellion is caused and escalated by the anger. Your anger isn’t caused by what is outside you; it is caused by what is happening inside you. Anger usually comes from either pride or tension from unresolved guilt.

God describes anger as:
  • A city without walls
  • An unbearable load
  • A flood
  • A poisonous snake
  • A fire-breathing dragon.
Here are seven key thoughts to stop
Anger the Destroyer.

The Influence of Older Children on Younger Ones

Dr. Davis recommends this video as his most important message for entire families to watch together. The main reason the Prodigal Son was a rebel was because he was rejected by his older brother. Most rebels in the Bible and in history were not second borns, but first borns. When second borns got into trouble, it was usually because they were following their older siblings. It is no quirk of nature that first borns are often very strong willed. God wanted that strong will turned in the right direction so that the influence of the parents and the 1st born cause the 2nd born to move in the right direction; then the influence of the parents, 1st born, and 2nd born move the 3rd born in the right direction, etc. There are 10 key principles from III John that older children should apply in relation to younger children which will bring joy to their own hearts as well as sweet harmony to their entire family.

The 3 Key Elements of Successful Parenting

Though there may be some exceptions, generally speaking, if a child chooses evil as an adult it is probably because his parents failed in some way to properly train him as a child. There are 3 ABCs of Successful Parenting that work together to help parents produce wise, godly children. Always win in training the child to obey. The parent, not the child, must be the winner in every contest of wills. A teenage rebel is often the product of a child who was not made to obey. Be gentle. Firmness must be balanced with gentleness or it easily becomes harshness. Greatness in a child is produced by gentleness in his parents. Consistently be consistent. Parents must not “start and stop.” They must stand together so that children know it is not possible to “pit one against the other.”

How to Train Children to Refuse Evil & Choose Good

That if it were truly possible to train a child to refuse evil and choose good? What more important thing could a parent do for his child?! Is such a thing even possible? Yes! How? By culturing simple appetites for the ‘best of the best’ in one’s child. The prevailing philosophy of our day that says we should expose a child to lots of good AND evil and let him choose is wrong! Such a child will, most likely, choose evil. The land of Canaan was a “land flowing with milk and honey.” A “butter and honey” diet would be a diet even better than “milk and honey.” This message explains and illustrates the “butter and honey diet” parents need to feed their children to train them to refuse evil and choose good. It also teaches how to decrease wrong appetites and increase right appetites.

How to Pass On Your Convictions to Your Children

In I Kings 3:5, “the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.” Solomon wisely asked for an understanding heart.

Knowledge is learning what God wants me to do. Wisdom is learning how to do it. Understanding is learning why to do it. God isn’t just interested in you knowing what you believe. God is also interested in you knowing why you believe what you believe.

In Proverbs God not only told the young man to avoid the strange woman and the evil man. God also told him why. When children ask the question, “Why?” it is not enough for parents to answer, “Because I said so.” A key to passing beliefs, standards, and convictions on to the next generation is by giving them understanding. Understanding is also vitally important as a motivation to cause someone to seek after knowledge.

Overcoming Discouragement

Cleopas and his friend should have been happy. The resurrection had just taken place! But they were sad and discouraged. Jesus personally talked to them and helped them with their discouragement. What should you do when discouraged?
  1. Try to understand why. Discouragement is often a reaction to a real or an imagined loss. It may also be because of false expectations. Ask yourself several key questions to understand why you are discouraged.
  2. Talk about your discouragement with the right people. Talk to the Lord! Also talk to someone who is spiritual.
  3. Listen to truth until you get a fresh perspective. Then get up and get moving and attack your mountain of discouragement and depression one step at a time.

Sinning Against Great Light

There are many blessings that God gives to each person, but the greatest blessing of all of human life is spiritual light. Perhaps no other city in the history of the world had the opportunities and spiritual light that did the city of Capernaum. Matthew referred to it as Jesus’ “own city!” More than half of the recorded miracles of Jesus were performed in or around Capernaum! One of the most amazing statements of Jesus was when he said that if Sodom had had the “mighty works” done in Capernaum that Sodom “would have remained until this day!” God gives some measure of spiritual light to every person who has ever lived. If they respond to that light, then He gives more light. If they reject that light, they move into darkness. The privileges and opportunities of great light are also a great responsibility. For someone to experience great light and then walk away from it is one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

Seeds of Disintegration Planted by the Boyfriend/Girlfriend Philosophy

This may be the most important of the “Betrothal” series because it lays a foundation for the subsequent messages. The boyfriend/girlfriend game of our western culture is like an idol. This idol is erected not only in our society, but also in our homes and churches! It is not possible to build an altar to the Lord without first destroying false idols. This message gives little direction in relation to finding a mate, but it destroys the idol so that people are then able to hear God’s truth. The falseness of this philosophy is exposed by the Word of God. It is also exposed by the bad fruit it has produced in the lives of numerous people.
